    23.98 HD project - Shoot speed for slo-motion

    I'm working on a 23.98  HD avid project. The filmmakers want to re-create the look of slow motion film when shot at around 48fps in a film camera and played back at 24fps projector - But using an HD video camera. Do they need a special camera? Anybody go through this process before & have any pointers. I've tried an Avid slowdown of standard 23.98 shot footage and it isn't the look they're going for. Thanks.

    You are correct. They would need a camera that allows over-crank. If not, you have already seen the results shot at 23.98 then applying a motion effect to the captured footage.

    So how would I digitize footage from a camera with 'over-crank'?  Would I be able to capture into my 23.98 project even though it's a completely different frame rate?  They did shoot some 60i stuff that wouldn't capture unless I went in without Timecode.

    One way is to use the Panasonic Varicam and come in over firewire, this will remove the redundant frames. You can capture this in a 720p 23.98 project.

    Thanks for the replies. Would that also work in a 1080p project at 23.98? Also Is there a way for it to be tape based like HDCAMSR?
